The latest Bachelorette baby is here!

Jen Schefft and husband Joe Waterman welcomed their second daughter, Charlotte Grace Waterman, on Tuesday, July 31, she announced via Twitter.

Charlotte weighed in at 8 lbs., 3 oz. and joins big sister Mae Elizabeth, 20 months.

“She is a doll and we couldn’t be happier!” the former reality star, 36, writes.

Schefft won Andrew Firestone‘s heart on The Bachelor in 2003, then went on to star in her own season of The Bachelorette two years later.

The Chicago-based Schefft met Waterman, a trader, on a blind date in 2008 and the couple tied the knot in May 2009. They welcomed their first child on Nov. 13, 2010.

This was nice news.. she isn’t having every moment of her pregnancy chronicled (take note celebs of the world) and makes a simple announcement. Thanks, Jen! For not subjecting us to another Jessica Simpson pregnancy. And big congrats too!

Every moment hasn’t been documented because she ISN’T a celebrity.

kat, lack of fame hasn’t stopped many of the ‘celebrities’ on this site from drumming up publicity with their pregnancies.

Kat, some people really liked Jen and are interested. No need to be snarky. LOVE, love, love the name Charlotte Grace!! Such a beautiful, feminine name and, even though Sarah Michelle’s daughter has the same name, it’s not super common.

“Such a beautiful, feminine name and, even though Sarah Michelle’s daughter has the same name, it’s not super common.”

It is a beautiful name, I’m surprised it’s seen as uncommon. In Australia (which usually has similar trends to the US) it has been a top 5 name choice for girls for nearly a decade. (In 2005 and 2006 it was number two, second only to Ella). Last year it was number four, if I remember right.

* I just looked it up and Charlotte was at 25 most popular in the US last year and 15 in the UK, so I guess it’s trending a bit differently in other countries. Still, it’s definitely becoming quite common.

Sorry for the nerdy name post. I love following different naming trends!
